Gain work experience and develop your skills in the UK.
We arrange paid placements in the UK with businesses in the UK’s capital city, London, other parts of south east England and other major cities nationwide.
Our Covid-19 Guarantee gives you reassurance and helps you plan ahead in turbulent times.
There is a reason why over 30 million people visit the UK each year. With iconic cities such as London, Manchester and Edinburgh, rolling countryside and quaint seaside towns, the UK has a huge amount to offer.
Our paid placements in the UK are popular with international students studying at UK universities and who want to stay in the UK for their placement year. You can also join if you are from the UK and don’t want to spend time arranging a work placement – leave it to us so you can stay focussed on your studies and work.
Our paid placements in the UK are based in London, the south east of England and other major cities.
Experience living and working in or near the iconic and diverse city of London, one of the leading financial centres in the world. Alternatively you could experience life in another major city like Birmingham, Bristol, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Sheffield or elsewhere.
